    You need to check your pcie configuration. Someone motherboards divide their lanes and share them across multiple interfaces - for example some boards share their sata ports with m.2 ports - if you use an m.2, it will disable the sata ports or vice versa.

    This could be happening to you. Can you try installing your sound card into another pci-e slot?

    From the Gigabyte specification page

    https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-GAMING-7-WIFI-rev-10/sp#sp

    So, you need to move your sound card into a separate slot.

    Thanks

    I had to use the pci 1x in the top of the card, not the best solution... but the only one that worked
